Winner Of The Limerick Contest

Old Tom Wigley Has The Last Laugh

Presenting the winner of the inaugural Loony Limerick Competition - please put your hands together for Old Tom Wigley. I can now reveal that the judge for the contest was the eminently readable Canadian blogger Vic Grace.

Thank you for all the great entries, with some really memorable interpretations of the last line. There will be another contest shortly. In the meantime, here is Tom's winning effort:

There was a young fellow from Queens,
Who had really bad breath in his teens.
So he flossed and he brushed,
And his buddies were all crushed,
When he became the new face for Maclean's.

I must say congrats to Old Tom
With streamers and pops and pom pom!
A poet he is
His words full of fizz
He's truly a witty young homme.

Great conclusion to that limerick! And having Vic to judge -well just like Macleans - all in good taste. Right?
Loved all the comments too -which in many cases were as good as the entries. Lots of poets who don't know it but their feet show it - they're Longfellows!
